Hats
Hand… wear?
Neckwear

Other Things:

  • Ariel is bad at knitalongs, especially for mystery patterns.
  • Should we have a knitalong for MJ’s Claudia pattern? No, probably not. Instead we might want to have a knitalone.
  • And what about knitting holiday gifts for your knitting friends? Apparently Ariel is a bad friend because she doesn’t do it.

Are you knitting gifts for the holidays?
